Every year nearly 70,000 adolescents and young adults (AYAs) are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Of these, lymphoma is the most common. Teenagers and young adults with lymphoma have different needs than other cancer patients. Treatment can affect your education, career, fertility, and independence, which can be challenging for both patients and their families. Because of this, adolescents and young adults with lymphoma often feel lost – not quite fitting in at pediatric or adult treatment centers.

On May 17th at 6pm, Dr. Lisa Roth, Director of the Adolescent and Young Adult Lymphoma Program at Weill Cornell will present on the challenges faced by these patients. Her talk titled, “Updates on Lymphoma and Treatment Options for Adolescents and Young Adults”, is part of the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s, ‘Ask the Doctor Survivorship Program’.  This event will take place at Gilda’s Club, New York City.

Dr. Roth will answer questions and discuss the following topics:

  • How lymphoma is different for adolescents and young adults
  • Navigating treatment options
  • Understanding fertility preservation
  • Coping with side effects
  • Life after lymphoma treatment

This program is free-of-charge and dinner will be provided. Pre-registration is required. Full details are below:
